Strong skin barriers are necessary to protect the skin and its contents from damaging substances that would otherwise penetrate and absorb into the skin. The barrier also keeps in nourishment and moisture. Whether your skin’s barrier is damaged or healthy, it’s good to nourish it with repairing ingredients such as fatty acids, cholesterol, ceramides, and hyaluronic acid.
Here are some ingredients to look for in products that promote skin barrier repair:
- Silver Ear Mushroom: provides anti-oxidation, soothes redness, and calms reactive skin. This ingredient is a natural alternative to hyaluronic acid that holds up to 500x its weight in water — it helps form a barrier-protective hydration film, to keep skin nourished over longer periods of time.
- Rhodiola Extract: maintains water balance in the skin and increases blood flow in cells to reduce puffiness. This ingredient delivers more energy and blood flow to the cells, which reduces puffiness and dark circles — maintains the water balance in cells, for a strong moisturizing effect.
- Beta Glucan: soothes irritation and can protect the skin from pathogens and allergens. This ingredient soothes irritation, rebalances, and protects the barrier while also decreasing itching, irritation, tension, dryness, redness, and roughness to strengthen the skin barrier.
- Hyaluronic Acid: binds water to skin and has deep moisturizing effects. This ingredient is a naturally occurring substance that retains up to 1000 times its weight in water; it binds moisture to surface layers.
- Ceramides + Lipids: enhance moisturization and prevent moisture loss. This ingredient restores barrier function, enhances moisturization, and prevents moisture loss.

I have held a state-issued professional beauty license since 1986. I have seen thousands of faces and countless examples of poor skin conditions that could be corrected with simple good grooming habits that include products that are healthy and properly suited for their skin. Getting the simple things right with their products like a balanced PH, free of dyes, fragrance, petroleum, and talc to name a few things to avoid, could go a very long way. Healthy, balanced skin is a good place to be. This place is very different for each person, and I look so forward to discussing what that means for you!
